GrowRuck 03 – New Orleans June 9-11 combines F3 Grow School with a GoRuck Tough. You don’t want to miss this! If you’re sitting on the fence about this event, sign up today. This is a custom GoRuck event, which has been specifically designed for F3 to help reinforce the Leadership Development training that the PAX will be exposed to over the course of the GR03. As a FenceSitter, you will have nothing but regret for a long time to come, as the PAX that do participate come back and retell story after story of this transformative experience. So, don’t miss out – sign up!   http://bit.ly/2nWxT5H Ruck training is underway – to join the chatter on Band, let Inferno or Leprechaun (local event Q) know. Next ruck work Saturday 0500 at The Hogg.

Thank you for the opportunity to lead, more to come.  Special thanks to Britney for the encouragement, Inferno for the guidance in preparation, and Camo for the help along the way.
